H13007: Philosophical Issues in Brain Science [Seminar 2] in Spark 2019 (Mar. 16 - 17, 2019)
Think way too hard about your own thoughts for an hour. We'll discuss two topics in this seminar series. In seminar 1 we'll explore perception and modularity. This is the idea that the mind is made up of parts that build on another, like a computer. In seminar 2 we'll explore representational formats and mental imagery. We'll discuss if you think in words or pictures and the research on this topic. These seminars do not build on each other; you can attend seminar 1 or 2 or both.
